Trivia

Originally planned as a made-for-TV film, it was changed to a theatrical feature because of interest in the original series by the "Get Smart" fan club. As it turned out the film flopped at the box office, but a later remake of the series, Get Smart (2008), was a big hit. See more »

Goofs

During the chase scene at the movie set back-lot, Sebastiani fires one shot, but two bullet holes appear in the set. See more »

Quotes

Maxwell Smart: That girl worries me a lot, Chief. Whatever happened to the regulations regarding female agents? They're supposed to be unmarried, without dependence and willing to fool around a lot.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are based on Don Adams/Maxwell Smart's catch phrase "Would you believe...?" The words literally form the backdrop of the action; at one point "Would you believe a movie called 'The Nude Bomb' could receive a PG rating?" appears; and after Max inadvertently blows up the bad guy, the words "Would you believe a helluva explosion?" appear on screen.

Underrated
9 August 1999 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

Like the Austin Powers movies, "Get Smart" is a spoof of spy movies like the James Bond series, and "The Nude Bomb", made at the height of the Cold War, in the early 1980s, concerns Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, the guy with the shoe phone, pursuing the madman who has developed a bomb that, if exploded, would render everyone without clothes. This is an underrated movie and works well even with the absence of the original supporting cast from the 1960s television series. Almost, but not quite as funny as "The Naked Gun". 8/10
